We’re going to be using a tool called Porterhouse. It’s a free Mac app created by Cecil Worsley on GitHub. Instead of randomly blasting mass text messages to your contacts with all the restrictions that come along with it, Porterhouse automates the process of manually sending individual, personalized iMessages and texts to your list, completely hands-free.
Text message marketing (SMS marketing, iMessage marketing, whatever you want to call it…) is an extremely powerful and underrated marketing and sales channel. Some case studies show that text messages have an average open rate of over 90% compared to emails that have a 30% open rate on a good day!
I’m also going to share a quick tip on how to easily upload your list as a contact group inside of your iCloud account.
💸 Now how exactly did I make two $1000 sales in one day using text message marketing?
I went into my EverWebinar account and exported the list of people who registered to view one of our high ticket webinars. I sent a follow-up text to everybody who viewed the webinar but didn’t purchase with a link to the sales page and a separate text to everybody who registered for the webinar but didn’t attend sending them back to the registration page.
This resulted in two high ticket sales of our coaching offer each valued at $1000+ and it didn’t cost a penny to do. Better yet it only took about 15 minutes to set up the software and import my list.
⚠️ Now before you jump right into this, let me give you a very important disclaimer on text message marketing. The FTC like with all other forms of marketing, unfortunately, have some pretty dystopian restrictions on how, when and what you can send to your leads with SMS marketing. Please make sure you do a little research on what the most current regulations are and make sure the leads you’re sending iMessages to have all opted to receive messages. Not abiding by these rules and regulations can quickly get you into some hot water.
Obviously, the first thing you want to do is download the Porterhouse app or another app with the same functionality and connect it to the phone number you want to use.
Then, importing your leads is usually the hardest part, but its no nightmare. It’s just a matter of exporting and importing your leads wit the right format, file type and etc. Once you find a workflow to do this you’ll just copy it each time and keep adding new leads to your contacts.
Porterhouse uses your Apple iCloud contacts to send texts to your leads so I recommend creating separate groups to keep things organized. Especially if you use your contacts for personal matters and don’t want it filled with thousands of random people.
Oddly Apple doesn’t let you create new contact groups from your iPhone or Mac contacts app. You need to use the web version of iCloud. So head over there, click on contacts and create a new group for your leads and you’re ready to import.
BUT… You need to have your leads in a vCard contact format. The problem is 95% of the leads you export are going to be in CSV spreadsheet files. So how can you fix this without spending hours editing the file and matching the right format manually? Google Contacts.
Google contacts will let you upload a standard CSV file right form your autoresponder and export them as a vCard file that iCloud is looking for. Easy! If you don’t see your new group showing up in the app right away just reopen it or click the refresh button.
Now you’re ready to send your first campaign. Porterhouse lets you use personalizations like inserting your leads first and last name and even upload and attach files with your texts.
Once you’re ready, save your broadcast as a draft or send it immediately. Just remember, this app emulates the manually sending of multiple SMS messages through the Messages app on your Mac so once you hit start don’t touch the mouse or keyboard and let it do it’s thing.
Text message marketing isn’t just great for sales. You can use an app like this to follow up with your students as a teacher, update your entire team about a project or keep your consulting clients up to date. I’m curious to see the creative ways you guys use this method down in the comments below.
